"Excellent care at a very precious time."

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

Absolutely thrilled with the care and attention I was given when I gave birth to my little girl 13 days ago. Everyone, from cleaners to consultants, chatted, smiled and made my birthing experience amazing. I was explained every step, as I had a c section and all of the staff helped to ease my anxiety. Once I had had my baby both me and my husband were helped on the ward. There wasn't one member of staff that I came up against who I felt like a number to. The cleanliness was second to none and we witnessed the staff ensuring that every crevice was cleaned.
